BGR Interview: Lighting Science Group CTO Fred Maxik Chief on the future of light

BGR recently caught up with Fred Maxik, Chief Technology Officer of Lighting Science Group, to talk about what the company is doing in the lighting industry. Not many consumers are familiar with Lighting Science Group yet, though some might remember the company from last year’s Google I/O conference as it was the first partner Google teamed up with for its Android @ Home initiative. What really interests me about Lighting Science Group is the company’s vision on the future of light, and what it is doing to change and reinvent lighting.
